Iconic Bollywood actor Dilip Kumar has turned 98 on December 11, 2020.
But the veteran actor did not celebrate his birthday this year.
Saira Banu, wife of Dilip Kumar had earlier said that as the veteran star lost two of his brothers due to COVID-19, this year he will not participate in a big celebration.
She also added that since Dilip Kumar’s immunity is low and he is not keeping well, there won’t be any celebrations.
However, as the legendary star turns a year old, many of his fans, coworkers, and actors took to social media to send him wishes and prayers.
To the one and only, who amazed and inspired the world by just being himself. Wishing the legendary @TheDilipKumar a Happy Birthday.
